    Once you get into this book you won't be able to stop reading. It kept me up all night. Don't read the extended description, just trust this author keep you guessing as karma unfolds. Most of it is shocking, but so, evidently, is the life that Leonard Wise has lived between New York to Hollywood. There's a lot to be learned from this unique American voice and unbeatable spirit. This is one of his best.
